even a chilly start for waldorf and baden and bowie all at 44 degrees this morning. one more look at the glow in the eastern horizon on our michael & son weather camera. mainly clear skies right now. 51 degrees at reagan national with a north, northwesterly wind at 6 and the dew point of 45. we've cleared out. still have some clouds off to the southwest and southwestern virginia with the fog also extending into the mountains. but really for us, high pressure in control. and it's going to stay in control. so we're not going to have any real significant weather headed our way. not just for the next few days but probably right through the weekend. there is going to be a storm system that's going to be developing down across areas coming out the mississippi valley. you can almost see the upper level low coming through missouri. here we are at 5:00. lots of sunshine here. we could use more rain. had some good rain saturday night as far as the water. maybe not the timing but we really needed the rain. we're drying out for a few more days because while there's rain here tomorrow, midday, in
kentucky and tennessee, down through alabama and georgia, we're going to be sunny once again. good deal of sunshine. another beautiful day around here. highs in the mid- to upper 70s tomorrow. we'll watch the rain wednesday morning into kentucky and then by wednesday afternoon it's not making a lot of progress east with high pressure here blocking. as we get into wednesday night and thursday, it just doesn't have the push. it may through a few -- throw a few clouds our way. as far as any rain i think it will stay to the south. today a chilly start. a beautiful afternoon. 75 degrees for leesburg. frederick is going to warm up nicely after the foggy cold start. even on the eastern shore we'll have lower 70s. right by the bay, water temperatures starting to drop. so annapolis may struggle to get out of the 60s today. then tonight not as cold but, you know, some low 40s in a few areas. not 30s but low 40s to around 50, 55 here in d.c. here's your forecast in detail. today 75 degrees. a beauty after the chilly start. tonight 55 again with the 40s north and west.

the beltway this is in silver spring near georgia avenue. the outer loop westbound 495 looks pretty much like this as you leave the 95 interchange, top side of town into silver spring. let's go back over to the maps. this time to the south side of town. no problems on 95 northbound. it's going to be slow off and on into dale city, woodbridge, lorton, newington and springfield. all of your lanes are open on the interstate. if you're planning to head on the northbound side of 395, you're going to be okay to the 14th street bridge. inbound 66 slowing down near nutley street because of an earlier disabled vehicle. back to you guys. >> thanks, monika. 6:19. time for another look at question of the morning. it is according to an e-harmony survey, 41% of men admitted to doing what? is it a, playing hard to get, b, not paying on the first date or c, wearing just a little makeup? >> this is a little racy. our facebook friend sharita smith wrote, if you have cleavage, trust me, it certainly isn't a meaning playing hard to get.

good morning. everybody. i'm kristen berset. if you're a nationals fan, you don't like the st. louis cardinals, especially after they knocked your team out of the post-season last year. after last night you're really not going to like them. the nationals knew their chances were slim to make the post-season but they weren't going to go down without a fight. they really needed a win in st. louis last night. a two-run shot by carlos beltran was just not going to happen. the relds and pirates both won which means the nats are officially nip lated from the
post -- eliminated from the post-season race. the orioles may not officially be eliminated. they did lose one of their stars. third baseman manny machado stepped awk qrdly off first base and collapsed to the -- awkwardly off first base and collapsed to the ground. he will have an m.r.i. in baltimore. the caps, another preseason game, extra time. a theme this year. bruins win 3-2. and washington mystics' season sadly came to an end last night. they carried a two-point lead into the 4th quarter but were outscored 20-17 in the final frame. that will do it for your morning sports. i'm kristen berset. have a great tuesday. on the inbound side of i-66 it seems pretty normal inside the beltway here as you travel to the roosevelt bridge. out in bri is stow, an accident
involving entroopment -- entrapment. our sky 9 is headed that way. we'll have that for you in just a few minutes. you're watching wusa9. you're watching wusa9. we'll be right back. we love this kitchen! you're watching wusa9. we'll be right back. what's next? great! do you have measurements? yeah, i paced it off. it's about twenty by twelve of these. so, we can measure, plan and install it for you. yea, let's do that! ikea. professional kitchen services at a low price.

i'm andrea roane. i'm mike hydeck. good morning, mr. mayor we. know you're watching. mr. howard bernstein out on the weather terrace for yet another gorgeous day coming our way. >> it's going to be gorgeous this afternoon. this morning jacket weather. in some cases we even have some 30s. i wouldn't be surprised if there was a touch of frost in a few spots. beautiful sky this morning. sunrise in about half an hour at 6:58. 51 reagan national. most of you are in the 40s this morning and we've got the crisp start but a sunny, beautiful afternoon. highs 72 to 77. that 77 is going to be south and west toward culpeper and orange. temps right now down to 37 in frederick. 39 cumberland and winchester. manassas this morning with temperatures in the 40s. the visibility in frederick right now running about three- quarters -- half a mile now. monika samtani, how is traffic running? the inbound side of i-66 i'm going to show what you it looks like live here from our sky 9. this is in manassas at
route 234. see, howard, you get up early and you don't have to deal with this. on the inbound side you can imagine it's 6:30 in the morning and you have bumper to bumper traffic basically out of manassas here, route 234 heading all the way through centreville before that pace picks up. all brake lights this morning with the lanes open. by the way, an accident in bristow involving entrapment on piney branch lane at wellington road. i do believe the driver seems to be doing okay at this time. let's go over to a map and on the inbound side of i-66 as you said, you've got it out of manassas. it's going to be the most of the way on and off into fairfax and the beltway. if you plan to head in from southern maryland, we're in great shape on route 4, 301, 210, accokeek into oxon hill as well and we'll end with a live picture in springfield on the northbound side of 95. pretty much the same story. brake lights dale city, off and on to woodbridge, lorton, newington and here into springfield. andrea and mike. >> thanks, monika. time to see what our partners at cbs this morning
are covering. >> norah o'donnell spanning by live in new york city. good morning, norah. >> good morning you to, mike and andrea. ahead, our conversation with president bill clinton. his personal connection to the kenya attack, whether he thinks president obama should meet with the new iranian leader and hillary clinton's possible 2016 run. plus, former f.b.i. insider john miller on how the government is working to keep terror organizations from recruiting and operating right here in the u.s. and one-third of the rock 'n' roll super group crosby, steels and nash. 50 years of rock history. the news is back in the morning. we'll see you right at 7:00. >> thanks a lot, norah. >> thank you. security forces in nairobi, kenya say they have control of the building but the operation to end the terror siege is not over. two or three americans and one brit are believed to be among the gunmen who stormed the mall in kenya according to a
statement from ken came's -- kenya's foreign minister. kenya's military says most of the hostages have been released. ten could still be inside the west gate mall. al-shabaab, a somali-based terror group is claiming responsibility for the attack. president obama will address the u.n. general assembly today in its session but there's a much smaller talk getting attention. >> secretary of state john kerry is expected to meet with his iranian counterpart this week to discuss iran's nuclear program. vinita nair has more on the two nations' first substantive talk since the 1979 iranian resolution. >> reporter: president obama will address the world this morning at the opening of the u.n.'s general assembly meeting. but it's the possibility of a more intimate talk that is drawing the most attention. iranian president hassan rouhani could meet face to face with president obama today. if it happen it is would be the first time the leaders of the two countries talked since the
iranian revolution in 1979. administration officials have not ruled out the possibility but say no meeting is scheduled. but iran and the u.s. did agree to official talks later this week while representatives from both countries are here in new york at the u.n. meeting. secretary of state john kerry will join his iranian counterpart and representatives of five other countries this thursday to talk about iran's nuclear program. president rouhani says he would like his country to improve relations with the outside world. >> so the time is now ripe for those statements to be matched by concrete steps by iran. >> reporter: the u.s. has led efforts to impose strong sanctions against iran because of its uranium enrichment program. sanctions which have crippled that nation's economy. vinita nair, cbs news, the united nations. israel is paying close attention to any overtures between the united states and iran. last year israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu claimed iran was developing a
nuclear weapon and needed to be stopped. congress has a week to pass a new budget or the government is going to shut down. the senate started debate on a budget bill yesterday. >> majority leader harry reid promises to pass a bill which funds the government and obamacare but republicans want to strip away the money to implement the president's health care plan. so how would a government shutdown affect you? delia goncalves is live in northwest outside the d.c. mayor's office at the wilson building with more on the local impact. good morning, delia. >> reporter: good morning, andrea, mike. later today, mayor gray will announce details of the city's contingency plan. we all know that if the federal government shuts down, federal services will likely be delayed, but for d.c., that means our local services, a lot of them may come to a screeching halt. why? well, that's because congress still controls the district's budget. and without representation on the hill, d.c. really has no
control over this matter. so if congress continues this budget impasse another seven days, the government will shut down october 1. and for d.c., that means most of the city will shut down, too. >> this will have a financial impact on the district. and it's -- it's unfortunate because it has nothing to do with the term government. we raise our own taxes. these are construction projects that are private projects, but in order to have the government to be sure to get a permit or other things night move forward, it won't happen and that's absurd. >> reporter: tommy wells fired up about this issue. he's also running for d.c. mayor and along with mayor gray, support budget autonomy and says this is an exact reason why the city should control its own budget. here's the good news. what will stay open? schools, police, and fire.
the bad news? libraries, street sweeping and trash collection are on the chopping block. and construction sites, we could see some empty construction sites because the agency that hands out building permits will likely close, too, if the golf shuts down. andrea and mike, the bottom line there, hundreds of people who work on those construction sites may be out of a job. >> going to be plenty of people barking to get this done. >> people think it's just somebody who works on capitol hill but it's not just that and it's not just washington, d.c. it's across the country and in your backyard. >> thanks, deal yarks live at the wilson -- delia, live at the wilson building this morning. doug ganzler will begin a statewide tour to officially launch his campaign for governor. he's going to face off against lieutenant governor anthony brown who is running in a bid for democratic nomination. harford county executive david craig, state delegate ron george, the former chairman of the republican central company
charms lawler are all vying for the republican nomination. a new poll suggests that voters prefer democrat terry mcauliffe over attorney general ken cuccinelli for virginia's governor's race. mcauliffe got 47% to kush nellie's 37% -- kush nellie's 37 -- cuccinelli's 37% of the vote. many of the voters polled say they don't like either candidate. women voters were pushed by helping get mcauliffe head of kush nellie. -- >> cuccinelli. a troubling story of parental rights. we may never know the identity of the man who won the $400 million power ball jackpot all because the convenience store was out of hot dog rolls. >> smart and lucky manual. don't -- lucky man. don't forget we're always on at wusa9.com and the wusa9 app.

anything change since 4:25 this morning? >> it's a lot lighter. that's about it. temperatures are still cold. still a touch of fog in frederick and maybe a touch of frost far north and west as well, especially the mountains. here's a look at the beautiful sky. sunrise at 6:58. still have the nice glow on the horizon. we're going so see a lot of sunshine today. it's going to help. in the 40s in most areas but by lunch time mid-60s and less wind that yesterday, should be much more comfortable to be outside during the lunch hour. highs low to mid-70s this afternoon. west, northwesterly winds late at 5, 8 miles an hour. there's the touch of fog, especially up in frederick. down to half-mile visibility. warrenton down through fauquier county seeing a little bit of that toward stafford and the mountains. elsewhere just clear and chilly this morning. temperatures have dipped into the mid and upper 30s now. look at winchester and frederick down to 37. could be patchy frost from jefferson county, west virginia, the eastern panhandle
down through frederick county, beary 1reu8 might -- berryville might have a patch of frost. 39 manassas. low 40s in cambridge at this hour and also tappahannock down to 43. locally we've got 40s in most spots with germantown at 40. 45 over at andrews. even fairfax a nice chill this morning at 45 and waldorf checking in with 43. a beautiful morning in spite of the chill. our weather camera picking up the glow. 51 degrees. clear skies. dew point 45 degrees. so the air is nice and dry and comfortable. once you get away from the body of water, that 45 pretty good predictor of how coldwell' get. on average we're about 40, 45. we have some clouds to the south and west. that's it. this whole week is going to be dominated by generally high pressure with one exception. it's going to an area of low pressure that's going to come out of the mississippi valley. but this high will be strong enough as it noses in more toward the east of us and it's going to act like a block.
this is going to come out of the mississippi valley here, head over toward kentucky and tennessee by midnight tonight. tomorrow it will be spinning across the tennessee valley with some showers up into ken ken. around here, mostly sunny skies once again with high pressure in control. that high will block the system from really moving much more north and east than where it is. as we get into thursday, here we are wednesday night and thursday. kind of spinning here south of charleston throwing some clouds, especially the southern suburbs. on thursday, this stuff will throw a few clouds our way but not any precip at this point. one thing we're watching, there's a possibility of a coastal low by sunday, monday that could have a much bigger impact than the delmarva than here in the district. today going to be gorgeous later on after the chilly start with highs in the low to mid- 70s. looking at our forecast, going for 75 today, although that's going to be a late afternoon high. it's not going to feel nearly as cool as yesterday also because the winds are going to
be light so a beautiful afternoon. 55 tonight with mid-40s north and west with light winds. tomorrow 78, an awesome day. a few more clouds thursday, still spectacular at 77. by friday still nice. right now i think the coastal storm stays far enough east of us. not too much of an impact but a stray shower. breezy by monday and 76. monika samtani, it's tuesday morning. we know the volume has caused problems. >> the volume is huge. all of us traffic reporters feel really bad for those of you who sit in this, especially this morning on the inbound side of i-66. and now take a look in cheverly on the bw parkway and route 50 affected by this accident on the southbound side of d.c., 295, right after eastern avenue. the right lane is blocked at the accident scene. wow t is very slow and heavy inside the beltway on both of those corridors that come into the northeast side and then southbound 295 after eastern
